Bette Midler Tells Behar that Glenn Beck is "Terrifying"; Says He Could Cause Civil War - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | September 30, 2008 | BrianinMO

Posted on 09/30/2009 9:57:09 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of Bette Midler talking with Joy Behar today where she said she does not think Glenn Beck is "even a little bit funny." In fact, Midler said Beck is "terrifying" to her, and that she believes he could spark a civil war in America like what happened in Rwanda that killed hundreds of thousands of people.

Even Joy Behar seemed taken aback by what Midler said. Behard defended Becks right to "hate speech," saying it is protected by the First Amendment.

NOTE: Glenn Beck does not engage in hate speech, and he is not trying to foment violence of any kind. He is simply opposing the policies of President Obama and pointing out the truth about him and his administration. Bette Midler shows herself to be a complete moron with comments like this. . . . (VIDEO)

If Beck was mouthing lefty bromides and a bunch of conservatives opposed him, the likes of Bette Midler would be telling us to get over it already and witha sneer on her face.

Beck couldn’t cause a civil war all by himself, there would have to be an awful lot of anguish bubbling beneath the surface.

If you cannot.. then yes you should be terrified -not of him, but of the govt.

You really get insights into people when you see what they are outraged about or frightened of, and how they look at things.

The Hollywood idiots are outraged that Roman Polanski was arrested. They are not outraged about his crime against the girl. They don’t care that he pleaded guilty in the case and has been a fugitive from justice. Whoopi Goldberg said it wasn’t “rape rape”. Apparently you have to say it twice to be really serious. But their anger is that a prominent producer/director may have to face justice. There’s no outrage about what he did.

The same Hollywood idiots piled on a Miss California contestant for having the audacity to say that she thinks marriage should be a man and a woman. Such a statement outraged them.

And somebody like Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh exercising their freedom of speech frightens the liberals, claiming that their free speech is going to incite violence.

Yes, there are revealing events into the mindset of the liberals/radicals/Democrats/Hollywood idiots.

Beck is terrifying. He's telling it like it is and not letting the cockroaches in government scurry from the light.

If Civil War happens, and I personally thought it was inevitable even before I knew who Beck was, it isn't Beck's fault. It's the out of control government's fault.

The system is irrevocably broken. Only a full on reset of our government, from the top down to dog catcher, will restore the Republic.

I was looking at her website to get an email address so we could let her know how offensive her comments were, but I can’t find anything on there for contact. I guess Caesar’s Palace might want some feedback about how we feel.

“Ignorance is a very frightening thing. These folks are weak beyong description.”

And this will be the cause of the civil war. They will be manipulated into it without knowing it. Being a sometimes student of history, I always had trouble understanding the brother vs brother thing that happened during the last one, but after seeing how certain of my family members are leftists, I am beginning to understand it. Hope it never comes to that, but I’ll understand if it does.

Midler and Bahar in the same room? That could create such an intellectual vacuum big enough to cause a black hole sucking up every piece of knowledge within a 5-mile radius. Every person in the audience is now dumber just for having been in the vicinity of these two.

Oddly enough, Behar (née Occhiuto) is a self-loathing, Catholic-Italian.

You know, it's hard enough to understand that so many in Hollywood, the entertainment industry, are such lefties, it makes it difficult to enjoy a film or performance, the work necessary to ignore their politics, viewpoint and just appreciate the art.

But when they expose just how really, really DUMB they are, well, that's it for me, I cannot sit through a movie or listen to a show from someone with this low of an IQ. I have to add Midler to my *just can't endure it* list now.

What an elitist snob, the way she proclaims that "educated people" don't behave this way. *Snooty tone* Oh reeealy, Bette, hmm ...

I too believe a possibly violent (is there any other?) civil war will occur in America; all due to the instigation and illegal, unConstitutional actions of the Communist Democrat Party!

I don’t believe that this report is true—it’s factually impossible.

Having Bette Midler and Joy Behar on a TV screeen at the same time would cause your set to explode from an overload of “fugliness” So I don’t think the FCC would let it happen.....

Apparently, the truth has slapped Bette Midler square in the face.

They have been exposed for the looney libtards that they are. Hence, they must respond with dubious and outlandish claims to refute said truth(s). Nothing new really. Standard libtard tactics, as par.

My one encounter with Ms. Midler was an afternoon sometime in the early 70’s. She was being photographed in my local watering hole in San Francisco for the cover of Rolling Stones. I was sitting at the bar with an oldtime friend of my mom’s, a woman in her 60’s. Midler’s mouth was so foul and loud that I had to go over to her and request that she hold it down out of respect for my mom’s friend. She became even more obnoxious at this point so we left. I am no fan.

"Oh my, seriously? I have no idea where I got the feeling she was Jewish - well I’m still sure Jews are embarrassed by her.. thanks for the info"

It's an easy mistake to make, I know because I made it myself. Behar (her married name from her first Jewish husband), has been in a relationship with a retired Jewish school teacher from New York for decades - not that there's anything wrong with that.

She is - by far - the most vocal anti-Catholic on a panel of anti-Catholics.

Odd co-ink-ee-dink, my radio just played the Behar-McGruff the Crime Dog PSA, the one where McGruff has two words for her, coffee cake, she comes back with “Ah, the old poisoned coiwffeecake trick”. Every time I hear it, I want to yell at her, “Genius, coffeecake is ONE word! Get a dictionary and a clue!!”

"The GOP is not entirely blameless in this."

I agree with you. The GOP has been infiltrated with DemoRATS posing as conservatives or so-called moderates. It is also packed with cowards who are afraid to take a stand for fear of being called "racist" or some other meaningless epithet. They have betrayed the trust of America.
